Corporate Information

Vision

Building a world where each of us can live “our own story”.

Mission

To empower individuals by providing a platform that visualizes their
knowledge, skills, and experience, and connects them to all people that require them.

Value

One Team, For Mission

True competitiveness is born in teams of people who trust each other. Trust depends on open and frank communication, a mutual undertanding of personalities and values, and the cooperation and drive to achieve a shared mission. Each individual should act as leader of the team, confronting oneself, deeply understanding other members, and taking initiative to guide the team towards achieving a mission.

Beyond Borders

Growth is the taking on of more responsibility than before. By rising above our current position, thinking at a higher level, acting with a view that goes beyond our roles, and expanding our range of responsibility, we can achieve growth. It is the growth of each individual that is the quickest path to achieving missions. Let’s not fear failure, and have the will to cross all sorts of borders, and exceed our past selves.

Fairness Mind

We interact with a diverse group of customers in society. Our team gathers people with exceptional talents, and various personalities and values. Because of this, fairness is our lifeline. In many aspects, maintaining fairness, and defining what is fair, is not an easy task. The ability to still face decisions without evasion and confront what is fair, is the source of our excellence.
